No, I'm from Finland. I was talking about
type 1. There is very little sunlight this far north, and it's also very cloudy. Then we still have the nightless night, and on winters the sun never really comes up for a month or two. Actually that only happens 1000km north from where I am and even then the sun stays really low all year round.
Vitamin D is added to milk here too. They actually increased the amount few years ago. Fish is also rich in vitamin D but kids or adults these days don't eat too much fish..
If you go here, pick new cases of type 1 in children in 2010, you'll see that Finland is right there on top with a "score" of 57.4 cases per 100 000. A figure of 24 is already considered very high. So for some reason, most cases are concentrated here in northern europe. But if you look at type 2, or total figures, Finland is not quite that near the top... Go figure.
Now I seem to have stolen yet another thread..
